Every one has different experiences with psoriasis and the various "cures" available. This one works for me where others have not. After 6 months on a modified regimen primarily of milk thistle, B-50 or 100 complex, garlic oil, lecithin and Omega-3/GLA, my skin has actually cleared in most places. I don't take all the supplements LeVan discusses. Being off the regimen for very long allows the lesions to re-form. This book was the first I have found that addresses the underlying biochemical cause of psoriasis (liver malfunction) and gives a non-steroid option for relief. At the very least I can now function in relative comfort and have worn short sleeves in public for the first time in years. Hurrah for this book!

I had terrible guttate psoriasis all over my entire body that morphed into plaqualar psoriasis--I suffered with it for six months, bad enough that I was bed-ridden. Even though I'd given up hope, someone bought me this book and I tried it. Using their diet "do's and don'ts" and supplement regimen (yes, it's like 60 vitamins a day. But when your body is crying out for help like that, severity is necessary). I was CLEARED...in three weeks. I almost wonder if the reason this is not known by all the world is because the insurance companies won't make money if everyone knew! Because, at least for me, this book really was a cure, and 4 years later, I've never had another outbreak. I combined this diet, by the way, with UV treatments (which had previously only helped temporarily).

I suffer from psoriasis and am also a nutritionist. I think the overall message of this book (ie psoriasis symptoms can be influenced to some degree by diet and lifestyle, and modifications of an unhealthy diet/lifestyle can therefore help mitigate psoriasis symptoms) is valid. However, I find it extremely unnerving to find a biochemist giving specific guidelines on nutrient intake which are not consistent with current recommended guidelines. Current guidelines are based on clinical studies and scientific research and they should not be ignored. A specific example - Levan recommends a vitamin B12 intake of 1000 mcg twice a day. The known toxic intake of this vitamin is 100 mcg/day (ie Levan is recommending an intake 20x the toxic level). This vitamin is stored in the liver and so toxicity is a real risk. Scary stuff. My recommendation to other psoriasis sufferers would be to believe in Levan's premise - a healthy diet and lifestyle will help alleviate psoriasis symptoms, then avail yourself of a book written by a well grounded nutritionist (Miriam Nelson for example) or consult a dietitian. At the very least, read Levan's book with an open mind, check her numbers vs other texts and use her guidelines with caution.

This was a good book and Lisa made alot of sense in what she said, however, the cost of the vitamin program is quite expensive. While on the program my psoriasis was better and I felt great. The only negative drawback I had was the cost of the vitamins, but I guess there is a price to pay for clear skin!

Finally, an easy to read and understand book that clearly explains what to do to get rid of psoriasis, how to do it, and why other methods commonly in use, such as lots of exposure to direct sunlight or UV light, are potentially very dangerous. Very practical and useful information. I would highly recommend it to anyone who has psoriasis or who has a friend or loved one with psoriasis. It is, as a friend of mine has said, "like a breath of fresh air".

Format: Paperback
I want to believe that taking mega doses of vitamin supplements will cure Psoriasis, but at the same time my common sense tells me to listen to the previous cautionary post from the nutritionist -- the recommended amounts of supplements in this book seem extreme. And I doubt I'd ever get my son to swallow that many tablets on a daily basis! The book promotes a "drug-free guide to stopping symptoms of psoriasis" but doesn't address the toxic effects of some of the recommended vitamins, except to say 'reduce dosage if you experience tingling in your hands' etc. The dietary changes on the other hand, seem very appropriate, but this information is available elsewhere. Anyone wanting to read this book would do well to proceed with caution...

This book has DRMATICALLY changed my life.I`ve had scalp psoriasis since 3 years and it got worse as a result of many factors.I had a hunch that something was aggravating my condition,but lacked medical knowledge to substantiate my views.Finally I have access to a book that gives many answers to my question.I now that I should never have any children because I could pass on my condition to them and it could be worse for them to bear.After trying the things mentioned in this book my psoriasis has reduced by nearly 60%.I have to comb my hair only once a day now,earlier it was twice as I had to get the flakes off.On certain days I feel that I never had psoriasis in the first place.The book mentions certain dietary supplements which can greatly reduce psoriasis.After exercising regularly (as the book advices)I feel great! Thank you Lisa Levan and please be free to write to me with any advice.
